  3. Haha thanks for that long reply RP but it wasn't really necessary. All the posts and reviews I've shared here since even before you were a member are same style, same format. And there's nothing vested in any of it other than love the game, come across many things golf related, meet many people, and when something is special, I like to write about it, really simple as that. But I appreciate and try to understand any opinions from everyone, as always, regardless.
  4. Hey gents, bit surprised if this ruffled some feathers. Simple as I came across this sweater, liked it quite a bit, wrote a review - which I like doing when I have the time, and thought I'd share it here. Have a few other reviews/interviews posted here as well.
  5. Forever Argyle The Classic Cool Of Antigua Golf's Argyle Range Sweater Vest By Pete Pappas (TheGreekGrind) You can follow Pete on twitter @TheGreekGrind and on blogspot at TheGreekGrind.Blogspot It's timeless, and captivating. Golf's founding father “Old Tom Morris” had it. It's defiant, yet beloved. The legendary Payne Stewart had it too. There will always be golf. And there will always be argyle. The classic cool of Antigua's Argyle Range Sweater Vest takes well deserved glory to a whole new level. You'll feel the difference as soon as you put it on. And you'll look like a person with more interesting stories to tell, both on and off the golf course. Argyle Allure There's something special about an argyle vest. It has a subtle power of suggestion. It makes a man wearing it look at ease. A famous golfer once said argyle makes him think more clearly. Who doesn't need that? “The philosophy during the development cycle is that each garment be built to stand alone - as though you were creating someone's ‘favorite' piece – and build those pieces out to assemble a full collection of favorites,” says Antigua Head Designer, Sean Gregg. The Antigua Argyle Range Sweater Vest is part of Antigua's fall/winter Performance Golf Collection, but it's a welcome sight no matter the season. I've worn it comfortably in temperatures as cool as 40 degrees layered with a turtleneck, and as warm as 75 degrees with mock short sleeve turtlenecks, and polo shirts. And what I love most about the AntiguaRange is you can walk right off the golf course and meet your friends for dinner or a night out and not miss a beat. The AntiguaRange is functional performance apparel. It's also stylish lifestyle apparel. Color Story Compliments The Antigua Range is available in four distinct color groups, Keylime/Smoke, Berry/Steel, Wedgewood/Black, and White/Silver. And each color group represents a different chapter in the Antigua “story of color.” Keylime for example pairs an electric keylime green with shades of gray and every shade of neutral to form an unexpectedly pleasing palette. And so in addition to finding the Range Vest in this category, you'll also find The Viper Desert Dry full zip jacket, the Titan crew neck sweater, and the Versus polo. The Viper zip jacket features color contrast on the chest inset with an invisible zip pocket, on seam hip pockets, and a stand up self collar. The Titan crew neck sweater features an argyle front panel, and contrast chain stitch detail. And the short sleeve mesh Versus polo features Desert Dry Xtra-Lite moisture management technology. “[Each color group offers] a wide selection of shirts, shorts, outerwear and hats, so any piece from this group may be combined with any others to create a fashion-forward golf ensemble that's both simple and elegant,” says Gregg. Show Me The Good Stuff Few things are more disappointing than finding a new sweater you like only to discover later it's made from cheap material or poorly constructed. I'm pleased to report the AntiguaRange is neither of these. A remarkable achievement in both quality and workmanship, the Antigua Range is a 60% viscose, 40% cotton, 10 gauge v-neck sweater vest with ribbed neck, armhole, and bottom openings. The cotton-viscose blend is designed to maximize the performance of your golf swing by making it breathable and flexible. "We are constantly pushing the envelope in the development of new fabrics, ensuring that we are staying current and contemporary in both style and color,” says Gregg. The gauge means the weave is tight and won't snag, it's durable. In fact, I've worn my AntiguaRange most of autumn, through the winter, had it dry cleaned it twice, and (though not recommended) even machine washed it (delicate cycle and hang dry). And it still looks just like new - a sure sign of top quality. The front panel diamonds and patterns align perfectly. And the neckline (black trim), armholes (keylime trim), and waistline (black trim) ribbings are all stitched as one piece into the body (as opposed to being individual pieces sewn in separately). No matter what the sweater, one piece stitching will always give you the most natural drape and best possible fit. Antigua does it the right way. The Antigua Advantage You're getting high end comfort, style, and quality with the Antigua Range. And whether you're just looking for an introduction to Antigua, or adding another piece to your Antigua apparel collection, you really owe it to yourself to check this charismatic sweater vest out. The Antigua Range is dynamic in design and appearance. You can layer it with polos, turtlenecks, short-sleeve mocks, in colder days and warmer days. And of course, it's argyle. And argyle is as much a part of the game as the clubs we use, and the courses we play. So go ahead, rock the Antigua Range. Good things are bound to happen.

  6. Again, another really fun review to read by GSD (and of course the substance is detailed, informative, helpful, and straight-shooting; the MGS way). I too say "Hail to the Victor!!!" Except I'm bagging the RAZR baby!
  7. Catch Me If You Can: The Win McMurry Interview A candid chat with GolfChannel's Lightning in a Bottle By Pete Pappas (The Greek Grind) On twitter @TheGreekGrind and for more interviews visit Pete at www.thegreekgrind.blogspot.com I had the chance to spend some time with Win McMurry recently, and she generously let me interview her for my blog http://thewinmcmurryinterview.blogspot.com (full size pictures at blogspot). I'm sharing the interview here with the MyGolfSpy community as well. Enjoy! She's the friendly smile of our neighbor waving good-morning. The familiar voice at home after a long day at work. And sometimes her bright soulful eyes are even there when we wake up and fall asleep. She's the girl next door, American as apple pie. And with all the debate about how to improve and grow the game of golf, from rules changes to equipment designs, one thing is certain. We want more of her. Give us more Win McMurry! The talented and beautiful McMurry is a daily delight at GolfChannel, where she anchors studio updates on “Golf Central”, and is a contributor on the “Grey Goose 19th Hole". Win also hosts "Winsday" (a behind the scenes look at what Wednesdays are like for McMurry at Golf Channel), and "Gone with the Win" (a web-exclusive program covering a potpourri of things PGA Tour and golf related). Win graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, with a second major in communication studies. She also holds a post-graduate certificate from the Kenan-Flagler BusinessSchool at UNC. Before joining GolfChannel in 2010, McMurry was a Producer and On-Air Talent at PGA Tour Entertainment, where she traveled extensively across the country, covering the PGA Tour as a feature reporter and interviewer. And prior to that, she was a Field Producer and Production Assistant at CBS Sports & WCBS-TV, where she covered the NFL, NCAA Football and Basketball, and the PGA Tour. Win's charismatic style and confident allure make golf fans everywhere all the more enthusiastic about the sport they love. And it's not just GolfChannel viewers taking notice. McMurry was named 2011 “No. 1 Golf Beauty” by prestigious Golf Magazine. And for the second consecutive year, she's the glamorous “Birdy & Grace Collections” Industry Ambassador. But when the cameras start to roll, this easy-going, gorgeous gal is much more than “just a pretty face”. P.P: Win thanks for taking the time today. W.M: My pleasure Pete. I'm not used to being in the hot seat though; usually I'm the one asking the questions. You're turning the tables on me! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: I am. It's obvious you absolutely love your job at GolfChannel. When did you know you wanted to pursue a career in broadcasting, and what was your big break? Was there something different you wanted to do before that? W.M: I do love my job at Golf Channel! For many golfers, it's their dream job, and I am blessed to have it and enjoy what I do every day. But, I did not grow up with it as my dream job. I knew that I wanted to do something that involved writing and the media and I always enjoyed the performance arts, but it wasn't until my senior year at in the School of Journalism and Communication Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill that I realized a career in sports broadcasting was my calling. I originally thought public relations might be for me, but I had a wonderful sports reporting professor Mick Mixon, the current play-by-play announcer for the Carolina Panthers, and he was instrumental in encouraging me to pursue this instead. I moved to New York after college and ended up working behind-the-scenes for CBS Sports on their PGA Tour coverage and while on the road heard of a possible job opportunity with the PGA Tour reporting for their online coverage, and I chased that lead…and won the job. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: They say “choose a job you love and you never have to work a day in your life”. Were it so easy! Can you talk a little about the planning, the preparation, what's involved in putting together one segment of Golf Central or the Grey Goose 19th Hole? W.M: There certainly is a lot of work that goes into it! I am very lucky at Golf Channel to have a wonderful team of producers and APs to help and assist with what we do on every show. Of course we are tuned into live golf coverage, but we also are digging and consuming the golf news around us. We have production meetings before every show where we discuss show elements and where our topics and discussions will go. Everyone has to be on the same page. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Do you have a favorite golfer? Who is it? W.M: Answering this question is a landmine! I was always told journalists don't root for a particular player, they root for the story. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Fair enough Win. You're the GolfChannel “Fantasy Challenge” defending champion, and this year you're not just beating (Rex) Hoggard, (Charlie) Rymer, (Todd) Lewis, (Jason) Sobel, and (John) Hawkins, you're flat-out overwhelming some of them. How do you navigate your way around the studio with all those vengeful broken egos taking aim at the bulls-eye on your back? W.M: Oh don't you worry; I do get plenty of comments, especially since Golf Channel spotlighted my Fantasy success this year! I just try to keep making solid picks every week. So far it's worked pretty well. I was leading the “expert” standings until my match play bracket exploded after day one. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: OK this one's somewhat related to the previous question, tapping in to your prognosticator-prowess. Charlie Rymer vs. Brandel Chamblee. Match Play. Who's your pick? Come on! W.M: Oooh…another hard one. I really enjoy working with both Rymer and Brandel. The two of them get into it sometimes don't they? Charlie is a silly, always upbeat, big (no pun intended) presence in the studio and around the office. Brandel on the other hand prides himself as an intellectual. I've never played golf with either of them, but I'd put my money on Brandel. Word around here is that he's still pretty good… -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Haha, thanks Win. Let's change the pace of play a bit now with some quick on-the-clock questions and answers. Here we go. P.P: The club in your bag that never lets you down? W.M: 9 iron. P.P: And what about your nemesis club? W.M: 3 wood. P.P: What's your favorite course on the PGA Tour? W.M: non-major is PebbleBeach, major is Augusta National (though never played it). P.P: Will Tiger win a major in 2012? W.M: Yes. P.P: A nickname you have that people probably don't know about? W.M: Fred (Win is short for Winifred, so close friends switch it up). P.P: What's your most memorable shot and where was it? W.M: Tee shot at par-3 15th at Cypress Point. P.P: And how about a movie you saw recently that you liked a lot? W.M: Overboard, saw it for the first time this week. Goldie Hawn is hysterical. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Win you're a role model for countless young women around the country with aspirations to succeed in sports broadcasting. Did you have a role model growing up, and what advice would you give these young ladies looking to follow in your footsteps? W.M: I have always really admired the women anchors of the TODAY Show on NBC. I am enamored watching them balance the light and hard stories they cover every day on such a wide array of topics from sports to current events to features. They are always classy, real, and relate so well with their audience. I would tell other young women interested in this industry to not underestimate the importance of hard work and dedication. To be in this line of work you have to persevere, be persistent and determined. Networking is also extremely important, and you cannot be shy going after what you want. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Since joining GolfChannel in 2010, what “Whoa-Baby!” shot sticks out most for you as one of the best you've seen on Tour? For me it was the all or nothing, out of the pine straw, “Amen Corner”, around the trees, Phil Mickelson Masters shot on No. 13 at Augusta in 2010. W.M: That was really impressive, and you're right, since 2010, that probably is “the shot” that is the most memorable. But how about Rory McIlroy holing out from 114 yards at the 8th in round two of the U.S. Open on his way to an 8-stroke victory? Or, better yet perhaps, Bill Haas' splash hole-out from the water on the second playoff hole at the Tour Championship last year to stay alive in the playoff and ultimately win? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: As GolfChannel's style maven and “Fashion Focus” web-exclusive contributor you have your finger on the pulse of everything fashion in the golf world. And you're again the Industry Ambassador for the exclusive and brilliant designs of Birdy & Grace in 2012. Who are some players on the PGA and LPGA Tours you like to follow just to see what they're wearing? W.M: Belen Mozo is a brand ambassador for Greg Norman Collection, and she couldn't be more lovely and stylish. She always looks attractive and smart on the course. As for the guys, I like the more tailored looks of J. Lindenberg (Jesper Parnevik & Camilo Villegas) and Ian Poulter Designs as well as the classic look of Polo Ralph Lauren (Davis Love III & Webb Simpson) and Peter Millar (Bill Haas). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: I saw Tony Dovolani from Dancing with the Stars gave you a salsa lesson recently. How'd you do? It'd be sensational to see you as one of the 12 celebrity contestants down the road. If you get that call from ABC, is there a colleague in the GolfChannel studio you're going to seek advice from or ask to be your personal coach? W.M: I would love to be on the show! I grew up dancing, I was a ballerina through college and occasionally took classes in New York City. I'm not sure I'd seek anyone's advice here at Golf Channel…but I think Michael Breed would be a good guy to talk to about bringing the energy to the performance! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Final round of on-the-clock rapid style questions and answers. Ready? P.P: New music you like listening to lately? W.M: Well it's not new, but I am currently into listening to some of the jazz greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, and Billie Holiday. I also have been playing Van Morrison Radio a lot on my Pandora. P.P: A famous person your friends and family say you look like? W.M: No idea! P.P: The funniest thing you've ever seen on a golf course? W.M: It would have to be David Feherty announcing players on the tee at last year's Tavistock Cup. Google it. He's unreal. P.P: Your favorite interview with a PGA Tour player? W.M: My first time interviewing Arnold Palmer. P.P: Who's in your dream golf foursome? W.M: It always changes, today it's Michael Jordan, Fred Couples, and my good friend Angi Izzi (because she's a great golfer and knows my game and would calm me down)! P.P: What's your favorite PGA Tour event? W.M: To go to it's the Masters. To watch on TV it's the British Open (Open Championship). P.P: And a pick-up line someone actually tried to use on you? W.M: Can't think of one. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: OK Win, you get an exclusive sit down with Tiger Woods. And he tells you absolutely everything about what happened the year leading up to, the year of, and the year following his tumultuous, career changing 2009. Or? You're given Ben Hogan's “Secret”, written by his own hand, and authenticated. It's never been shared or seen by anyone but Mr. Hogan, but now belongs to you. Which scoop do you choose? W.M: No question, Hogan. To read his own words and learn about what it was that made his swing so automatic would be priceless. Tiger's story would be something for TMZ. Hogan's would be something for the Smithsonian. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Every television personality eventually, and (usually) unwillingly, provides material for their own personal blooper reel. For some it's like a rite of passage. For others it's an ongoing production. And for some lighthearted souls (debonair David Feherty), oddly enough it's both. One way or another though, everyone experiences these on-air misadventures, and hopefully everyone laughs about them after the fact. But what goes through your mind right at that initial moment when you first realize you just chunked it from the fairway during a live broadcast? W.M: In 2010 I had a “slip of the tongue” that spread like wildfire online and across other media. The timing of it, as it related to Tiger Woods, made it the perfect storm to make headlines. At the time, I only thought I stuttered my misspeak, after all I was live on-air and had to keep on going, but when I was alerted to the fact by my producer after we were off-air, I'm sure my face turned bright red! With nothing to do except laugh at it (like everyone else) that's what I did. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Win it's easy to overlook that television personalities have their good days and bad days just like anyone else. But as a professional you have to put those bad days aside once the camera starts rolling. Is that one of the most challenging things about the job? W.M: Sure, just like everyone else, I've had bad days in my personal life. I try to set aside whatever is bothering me and focus on my job. But I wouldn't say that is one of the most challenging things about my job. I really enjoy my work and I try to focus all of my energy on it when I am in the studio and preparing for shows. When we're “on” I am genuinely thinking about golf and our subject at hand and draw on that positive in the world and in my life. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Last question Win. Your two year rise at GolfChannel has been truly marvelous to watch. Mention the name Win McMurry to just about anyone, and they'll tell you, the more Win we get, the more Win we want. What does the next 5 years hold for you? Where do you see yourself in the next 10 years? A primetime GolfChannel talk show hosted by Win McMurry? W.M: That's very kind of you to say. Thank you. I would very much like to continue to work at Golf Channel for the foreseeable future. I would like to continue to take on more roles within the network as well. Golf Channel does a great job of presenting more “serious” golf news as well as “fun” segments, but when it comes down to it, we are covering the wonderful GAME of golf. For our viewers, it is a release to be able to watch our coverage, to watch talented golfers, and to learn a little more about the game and the world that surrounds it. One of my favorite assignments to have is to talk to people who this game has touched, and to share their story with our viewers. I'd really enjoy and be humbled to bring these personal stories to light and to life for you on a more regular basis…and continue to have fun doing it! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- P.P: Thanks Win … Fred. It's been an absolute pleasure talking with you. I wish you and everyone at GolfChannel continued success throughout 2012 and beyond. W.M: My pleasure Pete. Thank you. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Win McMurry's star power is soaring. Her distinctive charm, luminous smile, and compelling style burn brighter and hotter with each new day. And there doesn't appear to be any slowdown on the horizon to her surging success. So is McMurry lighting in a bottle? Well you know what they say; you can't catch it in a bottle. But luckily for all of us, we can catch Win everyday on GolfChannel, and follow her on twitter @WinMcMurryGC, and on GolfChannel.com. http://thewinmcmurryinterview.blogspot.com/ On twitter @TheGreekGrind and for more interviews visit Pete at www.thegreekgrind.blogspot.com http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvN5-lK3i-k
  8. You can say that again. Bill Haas, aka Mr. Big Shot
  9. Held ‘Haas'tage in Sudden Death By Pete Pappas (The GreekGrind) Freelance Journalist/MGS Special If you're not watching the PGA Tour on Sundays, you really need to start. Even my own dear mother, who's never watched golf in her life, said in astonishment after Championship Sunday at Riviera, “Do they do this every week?” Yeah mom, these guys are really “that” good. Bill Haas won the 2012 Northern Trust Open in one of the most heart-stopping, spine-tingling, bewildering spectacles the tour has seen in years. Matched up in a three-way playoff with final round leaders Phil Mickelson and 2011 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Keegan Bradley, how Hass won, might have been even more amazing than the fact that Haas won. So how did it all get to be a free-for-all playoff in the first place? Well that might be the most jawed about buzz session of the whole tournament. Pull up a chair, grab your favorite beverage, and let me tell the story about how Haas became Hollywood's newest leading man. This years Northern Trust Open will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the finest, and certainly most exciting tournaments in the history of Riviera Country Club. And Sunday's ride was far wilder than any of the Santa Monica roller coasters in the distant backdrop of Pacific Palisades, Calif. 2011 FedExCup Champion Haas sunk an absurdly unmanageable 45-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole at No. 10, which stunned practically everyone on the planet. Perhaps even Haas himself. And that was good enough to give the Wake Forest alum his fourth career PGA Tour win, moving him up to No. 12 in the Official World Golf Rankings. “I never expected to make a 40-footer, and especially in that situation, Haas said. “There was a little bit of luck involved, but I felt like I put a good roll on it, and it was meant to be, I guess.” Just a little more than an hour earlier however, double-bogeys at No. 12 and No. 13 appeared to drop him out of contention discussion, a mere footnote in the back-and-forth battle playing behind him between leaders Mickelson and Bradley. Haas was trailing by two strokes with five holes left to play. But Mickelson and Bradley failed to capitalize on Haas' misfortunes, faltering themselves down the stretch. Phil bogeyed No. 14 and No. 15 (one of two times he incredulously bogeyed consecutive holes on the day). And Bradley didn't fare much better with bogeys at No. 13 and No. 15. Haas had new life, and his birdie, par finish on No. 17 and No. 18 put him at seven-under in the clubhouse (on the range actually) with the outright lead. Only the Mickelson-Bradley group remained on the course now, walking up the famed No. 18, with visions of improbable glory on their minds. Both men were (six-under) one-shot back of Hass. Both men needed birdie to survive. That's when the tournament took a “left” turn into the twilight zone, beyond the bounds of possibility, and into a place of vast, unparalleled, time-stopping frenzy. Unbridled joy was about to erupt on the 18th green, the likes of which arguably haven't been seen since the days of “Arnie's Army”. A new, modern-day gallery, “Lefty's Legion”, congregated to bear witnesses to their hero's attempted feat of mythical grandeur. To keep his dream of back-to-back wins alive, Phil faced a perversely nasty, fire-breathing, leviathan 25-foot putt (which of course had zero chance of going in, though technically speaking, according to PGA Tour Shot Tracker, there was a fairy-tale 8% chance of success). Well you guessed it, didn't you? We're talking about “Phil the Thrill” here baby. Dog will hunt. Ball had whiskers. Bone at the bottom of the cup. Fearless Phil delivered the fantasy. Come on back from the range Bill Haas, it's playoff time at Hogan's Alley!“I didn't think he was going to make that one,” Bradley said. “I should have known though, because he's a great putter and a great player.” But don't blink, no time to catch your breath. That was only Act I of the magic act at 18. Bradley liked how Phil looked up on cloud 9, blue sky. And the nervousness Bradley showed early on falling back five strokes at the turn, disappeared, beholden to his steely-eyed resolve. My turn. Staring down a slow-turning “whatever you can do I can do better” putt, right on the heels of Mickelson's conquest, Bradley forced himself into the playoff by knocking his 12-foot pressure cooker in as well. Imitation was the sincerest form of flattery for the Mickelson protégé. However neither Mickelson nor Bradley would duplicate their otherworldly performance on No. 18 again, the first playoff hole. All three players settled for par. And that would of course open the door for Haas to snatch victory with his miraculous, gangling putt on the second and final playoff hole, No. 10. Four different players held or shared the lead at various points in the round. There were more than a half-dozen lead changes. The famed 448 yard, par 4, 18th hole punished nearly everyone who dared step foot on it all week, curmudgeonly allowing only 30 birdies, while doling out a whipping in excess of 100 bogeys. And not far removed from center stage, this Northern Trust story had additional drama, embodied in polar opposites by tales of two other notable players. The resurgence of Spaniard Sergio Garcia, flashed signs of past El Nino brilliance by jumping 45 spots up the leader board Sunday, and deserved a standing ovation. Garcia finished in a tie for fourth-pace, seven-under for the round and five-under overall. He continues to show he's back in a good place, poised to win again soon. On the other hand Dustin Johnson, who goes from swagger to stagger faster than any other player on tour, was again M.I.A throughout the day. For every one step forward Johnson takes, he takes two steps and a terrible pitching wedge shot backwards. D.J finished in an impressive four-way tie for second place with Garcia, Jimmy Walker, and Jarrod Lyle. But Johnson isn't just a fourth-place talent (or is he?), and quite frankly he should be winning more often than he does (or maybe he shouldn't?). Instead he still looks confused on Sundays, ever since his Jean Van de Velde impression at the 2011 British Open. Granted, no one pummels the ball like Johnson off the tee. But he hasn't (yet) seemed to quite recover from that choke for the ages at Royal St. George's. Lefty meanwhile wanted his third career win at Riviera badly. You could see it in his disheartened eyes, hidden behind that gentleman smile. He coughed up golden opportunity after golden opportunity to seize the tournament with wayward drives and untimely missed approaches. Not even what he did at No. 18 will make that hurt less on Monday morning. A win at Riviera would have opened up the floodgates to discussions of a Mickelson dream season, and a rematch with one Eldrck Woods at Augusta. Remember Mickelson “phileted” Woods into Tiger meat two weeks ago at Pebble. Perhaps with more on the line at Riviera, he couldn't do the same to Haas and Bradley on Sunday. And with Augusta looming, Mickelson will have a lot to think over as he waits for a chance at redemption. For Bill Haas, there's nothing to think about, the Northern Trust Open title is an illustrious notch on his belt. It was one heck of a win. Hass has the heart of a champion, and a knack for the brilliant. Was Sunday's ridiculous birdie putt on the second playoff hole at No. 10 better than his $11.4 million shot snorkeling from the water last year at East Lake? Between two perfect moments, can either be better than the other? Notes: Before Sunday, Mickelson had won 4 of his last 6 tournaments when he's held a 36-hole lead. J.B Holmes finished in a tie for eigth-place, not even six-months removed from brain surgery. Here's what Haas had in play at the Northern Trust Open: Driver: Titleist 910D2, 8.5 degrees 3-wood: Titleist 910F, 13.5 degrees Irons: Titleist CB, 2-PW Wedges: Vokey Design Spin Milled, 54, 60 degrees Putter: Scotty Cameron Kobi (belly putter) Ball: Titleist Pro V1x Your comments and opinionns are welcome. The Greek
  10. Wie gehts Steven! Hey I just wanted to say I agree, not a fan of the composite sound in general, but thought the RAZR Hawk sounded MUCH better than the FT-9, FT-5. A lot less muted, a lot more metal sounding. I guess it's all preference, but found myself pleasantly surprised to not hear the muted sound I had come to expect from the composite. Either way, I can't wait to get my hands on this new one.
  11. I remember MGS broke the story last year that Callaway trademarked the name White Damascus. And lo and behold here she and exceeding all expectations. I'll take one of each please.
  12. fozcycle + 7 or 8 iron into raised green = GOLF SHOT BABY !!!!
  13. Hope someone gets in on this deal. I have the white ice bronze #9 and the finish is super!
  14. Dynomiiiiiiiite! Haha, thanks foz. I think so too, the X24s are accurate, great weighting. And they also have a very solid, strong feel. Moreso than even the X22 irons (and I'm not one to say latest is best necessarily; I prefer the DF over the RAZRs for example). I honestly found the X24s to be longer, and feel stronger, than the X22s (and not just because of the stronger lofts). They just feel more powerful. Any WOW shots with them yet?
